Event description

Description

Plymouth Science Park start-up, LiketoBe is a pioneering, innovative, digital networking platform linking employers with students and educators for real world career advice. Would your business benefit from engaging directly with schools, colleges and universities, sharing key career messages, work experience and job opportunities with them?

We are hosting an exclusive launch at Plymouth Science Park where we are inviting businesses to become founding supporters of the LiketoBe platform. As a founding business you can create a profile and promote your opportunities and career experience to our growing community of young people and educators.

Founder, and Plymouth Polar Adventurer Antony Jinman, invites you to our launch to pledge your support to raising students’ aspirations locally, nationally and internationally. Following this event, a local and national press release will be issued including testimonials and support from our founding businesses.

Join us on Wednesday 25th April from 11am in the Baylis Suite to network with other businesses and to find out how you can become a LiketoBe founding business. Register your attendance today.

"There is a massive skills shortage of engineers across all sectors here in the UK, not just the rail industry. Network Rail sees LiketoBe as a great opportunity to engage with young people and demonstrate what opportunities are available to them, whilst helping to raise aspirations towards STEM careers."Jane Austin, Head of Engineering, Network Rail

"As a school we are keen to look at how careers, employability and a sense of the horizon are integral to all learning. Young people need the chance to explore these areas in both primary and secondary schools. We believe that LiketoBe is a great process to support this and that we wish to get behind. It is a vehicle for creating and maximising community. I would recommend this to all schools, not because it supports your readiness for Ofsted (and it does), but because it is the right thing to do for young people and the communities we work within." Dave Strudwick, Headteacher, Plymouth School of Creative Arts
